Two men arrested for Worthing mobile phone shop burglary

12 December 2012

Quick work and determination from officers meant two men were arrested on suspicion of burglary after a mobile phone shop's alarm was activated.

At just after midnight on Wednesday December 12 the intruder alarm was activated at the T-mobile shop on Montague Street in Worthing. Police were called and using local CCTV and unmarked vehicles in the town, they managed to locate the suspects' vehicle.

The vehicle then headed northbound along the A24 and was later stopped by police officers at the Capel roundabout, aided by officers from Surrey. Two men were arrested and a quantity of mobile phones were recovered.
Detective Sergeant Alex Lowe said: "At this time of year there is often an increase in this type of offence as criminals try to cash in on Christmas. Worthing officers conducted a well co-ordinated and effective investigation which led to the early arrest of the offenders. This demonstrates that if you commit this type of crime, you will get caught."

The two men, a 21-year-old from Brighton and a 41-year-old, remain in custody on Wednesday 12 December.
